What Can I Expect

Pinzgauer driving in Scotland! Get behind the wheel of this legendary 6x6 all terrain vehicle in Renfrewshire. You will be amazed what this example of serious military heavy metal can do.

Named after the Austrian breed of cattle of the same name, the Pinzgauer was first manufactured in Austria in 1971 by Steyr-Daimler-Puch. These chunky 6x6 vehicles were a hit from day one. So reliable and rugged, yet fast and powerful too. And although BAE stopped making Pinzgauers in 2007, many are still in military and civil heavy duty roles around the world.

The Pinzgauer you will be driving in Scotland is ex-British Army. It's one of the later Vector 718 armoured versions made by BAE and it is a formidable force. Having served in Afghanistan, this Pinzgauer has seen lots of tough terrain action.

You will meet the Pinzgauer at a farm estate just outside Bridge of Weir. It's only 30-minutes' drive from Glasgow, but you are a world away from the city. Lots of muddy and hilly terrain, with amazing Renfrewshire countryside views too!

Configured for four passengers and two gun positions, this Pinzgauer is a real goer! Totally looking the part in full metal jacket camouflage, this 6-ton 6x6 will take on anything you throw at it. 

It's as brilliant to drive as you'd hope. Sitting way up high in the cab you feel invincible, as you rumble around the farm terrain. An instructor will be at your side to help you get the most out of the driving session.

For more time behind the wheel of this impressive 6x6 military vehicle, go for the Extended Pinzgauer Drive in Scotland to give you a solid 30 minutes behind the wheel. Buy your vouchers online now!
